Default Unable to locate RSDP - curiosity question

Hi,

I am loading Ubuntu Server on a 5 year old computer a friend gave me and I get this message when it starts to load:

"Unable to locate RSDP"

I tried Ubuntu 8.04 and 7.10 and neither would load so I tried 6.06 and although I got the same message it loaded just fine. I don't have a problem using 6.06 but I was just curious if anyone could tell me what this meant and what significance it had to the operation of my server.

Thank you so much for your help!
Andy

Seems to have something to do with ACPI.
Here's a possible solution: http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php...6&postcount=36
